The Beverly Hills surgeon who performed a breast reduction and tummy tuck on Kanye West’s mother Donda before she died has had two medical malpractice judgments against him for about $200,000 each, according to California Medical Board records obtained by Usmagazine.com.
Jan Adams confirmed to TMZ.com on Monday that he performed the operations on Donda West – who passed away Saturday at age 58 following complications from surgery — after consulting with her for four months.
He said her death was unforeseen and could have been caused by other medical problems.
But in June, Us reports in its upcoming issue, West had met several times with Beverly Hills surgeon Andre Aboolian.
His rep told the Associated Press that Aboolian had declined to operate on West because of a pre-existing condition that could have caused a heart attack during surgery.
He advised West to get a clearance from a second internist.
His publicist, Jo-Ann Geffen, told the AP Aboolian never heard back from the rapper’s manager mom.
An autopsy is scheduled for this week, possibly as early as Tuesday or Wednesday, Lieutenant Fred Corral from the Los Angeles County Department of the Coroner told Usmagazine.com.
UPDATE: The Medical Board of California filed legal papers last April asking to revoke or suspend Adams’ medical license because of two DUI convictions in 2006 and 2003, TMZ.com reports.
